Nui Coc Reservoir - Tourist Site

Nui Coc Reservoir is located approximately 90km from Ha Noi and approximately 20km south west of Thai Nguyen City. The 2,500ha lake is surrounded by mountains and includes 89 islands, concealing mysterious legends, some covered with trees and others housing flocks of storks or mountain goats. Nearby the lake, Coc Mountain stands imposingly amid the blue sky, the bright sunshine over every blade of grass and twig, all creating marvelous and splendid scenery. Nui Coc Tourist Site is divided into two parts: north of the lake and south of the lake. In the north part of the lake, there have guest- houses with reasonable price, entertainment area with Legendary Palace (Huyen thoai cung), Three Pine -tree Cave (Ba Cay thong), Legendary World Cave (The gioi co tich), Water Park, Dinosaur Park, and other games...
On summer weekends it can get particularly crowded. Visitors can rent a small boat to travel around.

Phuong Hoang Cave & Mo Ga Stream

The cave is located atop Phuong Hoang (Phoenix) Mountain, 45km from Thai Nguyen City along National Road N01B in the Thai Nguyen-Lang Son direction. Visitors spend half an hour climbing up 100m to the cave. Seeing from its foot, the mountain has the shape of two laying phoenixes. Legend goes that a long time ago, there were a couple of phoenixes living very happily and they were born two eggs. Everyday, the father bird looked for food and the mother bird sat the eggs. One day lured by a new flock, the father bird forgot his task and did not come back. Until he remembered his task and returned to the nest, his wife had been transmuted into a rock. Feeling regrettable, he laid on the opposite mountain, looking toward the nest with the hope that his wife could revive. Waiting hopelessly for a long time, he was also transmuted into stone. Since then the mountain has been named Phuong Hoang. 
Reaching the mouth of the cave, visitors can see the landscape of this land. The cave includes 3 layers: the upper layer is Doi (Bat) Cave, the central is Sang (Light) Cave, and the lower is Toi (Dark) Cave. The Light Cave is spacious and well-ventilated. The stalactites in the cave glitter fancifully thanks to the light from the three main mouths of the caves. Visitors can freely imagine the forms of these stalactites such as a mother is carrying her son on her back on the way to the field, ancient people are hunting wild animals, and lanterns.
At the foot of the Phuong Hoang Mountain, there is Mo Ga (Chicken's Beak) Stream Cave. Its entrance is 100m wide and there is a stream that flows out from the cave. In front, there are many rocks and small natural pool. 
The water is clear and the landscape is fantastic. The complex of Phuong Hoang Cave and the stream in Mo Ga Cave were listed as National Site by the Government in 1994.

Duom Temple

Duom Temple is located 24km north-west of the city of Thai Nguyen off Highway 3, at the bottom of Duom Mountain in Dong Dat Commune, Phu Luong District. 
This architectural complex was built under the Ly Dynasty to worship and commemorate the Prince Consort Duong Tu Minh and his two Ladies, Princess Dien Binh and Princess Thieu Dung. It consists of the Upper Temple (Den Thuong), Middle Temple (Den Trung) and Lower Temple (Den Ha).
These constructions are set in a beautiful area, which was the resting place of Prince Consort Duong Tu Minh when he grew old. The three mountains standing in the middle of the field look like a swallow's wings. The temple was built on the sunken part of the front mountain. In front of it, the Phu Luong River flows by and, in the distance, many ranges of rolling mountains are lost in the horizon.
